Leah Calvert speaks out on marital troubles caused by Jeremy’s work situation!

Posted on Jan 29 2014 - 1:07am by TeenMomTruth

As Tuesday nights episode of Teen Mom 2 aired, many fans were actively criticizing Leah Calvert for her nagging at her husband Jeremy about his job.

Everyone knows Jeremy works on the pipelines, and is gone away on work A LOT. We are pretty sure we heads Leah mention “5 thousand dollars a week” as possibly Jeremy’s pay. WOW. Some are left wondering what is left to complain about.

What most people don’t understand, is that until you’re in Leah and Jeremy’s situation, you can’t understand the pain and heart breaking factors that come along with willingly keeping a job that keep you away. Leah took to twitter to let fans know this;

We have to agree with Leah. Any wife with three young daughters would be naturally at home and missing her husband all the time. We know Leah and Jeremy are going to make it through this,

    As much as I like Leah and love following her story, she knew what she signed up for when she married and had a baby with Jeremy.

    Seriously, STOP hating on her! She’s missing him, she may have express it an other way but she didn’t. Everybody is different.

    My husband is a pipeliner. He hasn’t been home in a year and a half. I chose to marry him before he started making good money. I am a RN. I don’t work right now. I renew my license for when he will retire. I am proud to be a SAHM. He was always gone before in the military with less money. I understand where your coming from. It is very hard being a mother and father also missing out on holidays and our kids’ activities. Fortunately with technology, we have the opportunity to make the best out of the situation. We pray together before supper and before bed at night. We made a choice to better our future, thankfully this is temporary. My children are in an expensive private school and I have a 2 year old that doesn’t attend day care. We have a plan and have paid off our home and are saving for college and retirement. He has served our country and continues to serve now. Everyone needs gas and oil! I support families that make sacrifices to better their lives and serve our country. People are so judgmental. I’m so grateful and try to be a positive person. May God bless all!!!

    You guys are judging her from why you see on the show. You truly don’t know the whole story, we get to watch like 25 of Leah and Jermeys battle that’s it a week. Yes military wife’s go longer with out there spouses but they choose to marry one another. You have not right saying well she married him and she knew because a lot of you knew who you was marrying and why his/her career was so you have no room to judge.

    Leah you will learn to go with the flow, these ladies are right as you very well know weekends are much better than months or years. When things are right Jeremy will make the change needed to be with his family, but for right now it pays the bills and pays them well. My husband also worked out of town for about 3 years coming home on weekends, it was hard being mom and dad but I knew what he was doing was his best to support his family the best he knew how at the time. Life changes with out pushing to hard.

      My thoughts exactly! !!!

  9. Jen January 29, 2014 at 7:58 pm -

    Oh your husband is gone 5 days a week? But you get to see him every weekend? I’d take that in a heartbeat over my seeing my man for months on end.
    Try being a military spouse who’s husband makes less money then that AND is deployed 6-12 months every other year. Missing birthdays, holidays, births of their children, and other milestones. Any military wife, husband, or girlfriend/boyfriend will agree. Be thankful you get to see him that much.

      You choose to marry hime,like she choose to marry Jeremy. Guys that work like that all deserve a family also because for some they make it a temp. job till they get there family settled. Maybe Leah feels they are settled enough for him to take another job that brings him closer to home

    Leah needs to remember back before she got with Jeremy how she wanted a new house, car ext. Now she has a man that works his butt off to give her that and she starts making him feel like crap for doing it! I have been in this position so she needs to realize he has to go without seeing his kids during these weeks so that by itself is torture and her saying things to him like he don’t seem to care or he wants to becawaycis completely unfair. She is going to run off a really good husband and father if she keeps it up. Jobs like these are far and few between so unless she wants to get a job herself flipping burgers while he works in a plant somewhere she better just enjoy their time together and the lifestyle she is able to live because of it!

    What is she bitching about ?? Try bring a military wife and your husbands gone for a year or more and you are constantly wondering if your going to be the next door they knock on to let you know your husband has passed .. Suck it up Leah !!

    just stay strong and all you got to think about is that hes doing to support you and the girls.. you are strong and you guys will get throu this keep your chin up ….

    I love Leah on the show And off I was a teen mom also and married young (my kids dad) my spouse is a us marine for 16 years now and is gone for 8 months to years at a time and weeks in between that to the field. I have 4 kids one is also special needs and they hardly get to see there daddy and it hurts them and me to see them miss him! So shut up Enless you live a life where your husband is NEVER home you have no right to judge her I’m not talking about the women who’s husbands are gone on weekends I’m talking weeks to months then you can complain! it’s hard being alone all the time money doesn’t change that no matter the amount I want my husband home safe not being shot at over money! So don’t judge her saying money is everything! She wasn’t her man! Which you all would find something to bitch about if she said she just wanted money.

    She went into this relationship knowing this was his job. He’s not getting deployed for 1 year or more to a war zone… he’s laying pipe. He pays the bills and all while she takes care of her kids. He is providing for his family… be thankful because there are a lot of men who don’t do that at all.

    I am a mother of four and my husband also gone for work a lot. Sometimes 3 months at a time and 1year he was gone 9months out if the year. My sister in law is the same, she’s a military wife. Love is strong and faith will lead you. And learn to lean on your support system.
